Capacity of Responder Networks to Promote Resilience in Times of Natural Shocks and Stresses, 2014, UDS

This reports highlights the findings from a research project conducted by the University of Development Studies, Ghana in response to the ‘Preparedness and Resilience Research’ small grants program (Phase I) implemented by Response 2 Resilience Institute and the Global Disaster Preparedness Center.

Abstract: 

Kassena Nankana West District in Ghana’s Upper East Region was badly hit by floods in 2012, prompting widespread humanitarian efforts by government, non-governmental organizations, and communities. This study in the four most affected communities (Kajelo, Nakong, Navio, and Nyangenia) assessed how organizations, institutions, humanitarian service providers, and communities valued and used networking for effective response during this and previous flood disasters. The Community Score Card methodology was used as a tool to help the communities define indicators through interactive consensus to assess the effectiveness of networking among responder organizations.
